came back from that and put banned performance enhancing drugs in his body. his great defense was, after what i've been through, do you think i would put that stuff in my body and, of course, everybody said, everybody bought that because it was so plausible. so for lance to have actually doped after cancer was a pretty tough thing to do and i think it indicated a win at all costs attitude that was commendable and it was a seriously wrong thing to do. >> you were one of the very first people to question lance armstrong. it goes all the way back to 1999. what was it that made you suspicious in the first place? >> my first point of kind of suspicion was watching lance's treatment of a young french rider and there will be people out there, if they were all doping, how wrong -- how can you blame lance and single him out? they all weren't doping and one of the guys who did not dope in 1999 was a young french rider, and he offered the pin that you couldn't win this tour de france in '99 without doping and much of the colleagues resented him saying that. the guy who most resented him sayi
big defense cuts. lindsey graham's even saying, it's better than nothing. what do you say? do you think sequestration has to be avoided at all cost, or could it go into effect, forcing some sort of spending cuts and fiscal discipline? >> well, i think we can and we should continue to both reduce expenditures and add revenues in a balanced approach to debt reduction that should take several years. it took several years from 2000, where we had a surplus under president clinton to get to a deficit under president bush. so it will take some time. but i think sequestration is a blunt instrument. it doesn't allow the cabinet secretaries, not just the secretary of defense, but the secretary of every other agency, to make judicious judgments about which programs are higher priority. and we in the congress should be able to make those judgments ourselves, working with the administration. so i don't think it's the right instrument. i think the goal is appropriate, which is to reduce the deficit, do it in a balanced way, and recognize that there are some things that you can do up-front, quic
was going to win the heisman, man. >> he won every defensive award, best player on defense, second in the heisman, unheard of for a defensive player. and part of his story throughout the season was that in september of last year at the beginning of the season, his grandmother died, and then his girlfriend died within hours of each other. >> heartbreaking story. >> the reports range from an hour to a couple of days. >> you were watching and you cried. >> can i just say, my son, joey, said there's something wrong with this guy. he told me this months ago. >> joey is kind of wise. >> i was watching espn over the holidays. because alabama was on, the story. and they tell this story. and then i got a call the next morning. and it was like no, no, no! and i started tearing up. and i was like -- and then they showed him running onto the field. and i was, like, how did the guy do that the week after he found out that his grandmother and his girlfriend died, and then they went on to say he played for her the day they buried her, man. it was the most remarkable story. and i actually called j

"morning joe" starts right now. ♪ >>> only at the golden globes do the beautiful people of film rub shoulders with the rat-faced people of television. >> ben's first two movies took place in boston, but he moved this one to iran because he wanted to film somewhere that was friendlier to outsiders. "hunger games" was one of the biggest films of the year and also what i call the six weeks it took me to get into this dress. >> ang li's been nominated for best director for "the life of pi" which is what i'm going to call the six weeks after i take this dress off. >> okay, they were awesome. i thought they were perfect. >> hilarious. >> they were hilarious. good morning, everyone. welcome to "morning joe." it's monday, january 14th. with us on set, we have msnbc cont
% defense against the flu, this really raises your chances of not getting it. and if you do receive it, and you do actually get the flu, there's a good chance that the flu that you get, the symptoms are going to be much less. you'll be sick for fewer days and your fever will be -- your symptoms -- you'll feel much better. and it will not be anywhere near as severe as if you had not received the vaccine. >> right. so let me ask you, as somebody who has not gotten a flu shot because i have not yet. if i wait for new stocks to come in, are those vaccines better suited to the flu? do they then become more effective as the flu season goes on? >> no. the vaccine is the same vaccine that's being produced by the pharmaceutical companies. usually the world health organization will try to predict which strains are going to be the predominant strains. about a year in advance. and then it takes the pharmaceutical companies about -- probably about six months to produce the vaccine. once it's in production, it's not being modified until the subsequent flu season. >> the same vaccine you could have g
. >> you know, i was looking at a quote from the defense secretary, leon panetta. he uses more colorful language than i normally use on the show, so i hope our viewers forgive me, but i'd like to quote him. word choice is important here. he said this. who the hell knows what they're going to do from day to day he's talking about north korea. right now you know north korea just fired a missile. it's an intercontinental ballistic missile, and that means they have the capability to strike the united states. interesting if we could zero in on one part of that statement. who knows what they're going to do from day to day? it sounds like a reckless statement by the defense secretary, but a reckless assessment of a potential enemy. >> north korea is not a status quo power. it has used violence in the past to upset status quos that it found to be unacceptable. this kept the peace in the second half of the cold war. we had nuclear weapons. the soviets did. we didn't use them. the north koreans and possibly the iranians may not be status quo power. >> it's interesting you mention eyiran. when you
that's not a knee-jerk and neoconservative is going to be secretary of defense and that he's going to be showing a lot more restraint because he remains a realist even when he's in that job and he's around the table talking to the president, giving him the options that he has. >> i mean, i think people who like hagel personally should be pleased. people who like the idea that he's someone who can cut defense spending and is willing to do that and has the credibility to do that should be pleased. but there was also an element of this that was sort of a symbolic early squirmish over military action in iran. that hagel could only take the job by basically reversing himself on this stuff. and also on some of the things about israel. his statement to schumer showed explicit support for israeli civilian casualties in gaza, for bombing civilians in gaza if they need to. that's pretty intense. >> all right. chuck todd, thank you very much. we'll be watching you on "the daily rundown" right after "morning joe." and ben smith, thank you as well. >>> coca-cola doubles down on its pr push to g
, which really are top cabinet posts, treasury, state, defense, cia director, have all been white men and that has rankled a number of critics, particularly female critics. >> brianna keilar at the white house, thank you. cnn chief political analyst gloria borger is with me here in "the situation room" right now. and, you know, of course we've got some quick reaction from house speaker boehner -- >> yeah, boom. >> absolutely, let's put it up. i'll read it. the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government spending at the same time. the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real, but so too are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. so it certainly appears we're set up for another major showdown already. >> we are. i thirn it's going to be a bigger showdown in fact than the fiscal cliff. you know, the president today said, quote, we have to stop lurching from crisis to crisis to crisis. then he went and set the stage for yet another crisis, right. this time of course it' over the debt ceiling. and it'
